The new search feature in Windows 7 has been enhanced greatly in this version of Windows, and by default it saves recent searches. If you’re annoyed by this and want to turn it off, we will show you how using Group Policy Editor.
Note: This method uses Group Policy Editor which is not available in Home versions of Windows 7
Notice that when you go to the search box and start entering in something, the last three searches you’ve done appear. It can get old looking at mistyped words or seeing a search term that is old.
